The American Caliban
http://www.anysoldier.com/ is heartbreaking. All these kids over there wishing they had an XBox instead of incoming RPGs. Ugh. Looking through the wants and needs of soldiers on |
Of course they want candy, hygienic supplies, movies, music, consumer batteries. They also ask for pistol holsters, decent optics, working hand tools, and socks.
Dear the Government:
Please raise my taxes 10% and use the money to equip our soldiers properly so they are not charging into battle waving a spork at the enemy while wearing substandard battle armor.
In the meantime I guess I'll send the poor guys some candy.
